Re: APL's DIY axial-flux motor

The cores for this motor are designed, but the problem I'm having right now is that this DSM program I'm using only exports in STL, which is a 3D printer format. CNC machines use 'solid' format's like STEP, and IGES. S I don't understand, aren't you using Fusion 360? It can export in STEP, no probl...

Re: Power Loss on New eMotorcycle

The fans push a significant amount of cooling and they are dead silent. I'll monitor the setup and if they ultimately don't provide value I can try water cooling. Up to you , but if you want the fans to be useful, at least make them blow towards the bottom plate of the aluminum casing, that's where...

Re: APL's DIY axial-flux motor

I have been thinking about it though. (end windings) This is one half baked idea I've been trying to work out,..sort of a radiator style core. End turns get reduced, and radial turns are doubled. I'm not sure how the magnetics would wind up being yet, and I'm probably missing something major, but I...

Re: Power Loss on New eMotorcycle

Any luck on the APT software @Dui? It would be awesome to dive into the APT configurations. Sorry I totally forgot. I asked him right now so I'll tell you once I get the reply. Sorry to say that, but fans you installed won't serve much purpose. The orange part of the cover isn't the one you want to...

Re: APL's DIY axial-flux motor

Maybe you could consider using screws made of FR4 material (the kind of plastic used for electronic boards). They will resist the heat cycles and this is a very tough plastic with very high insulation characteristics. I think it might work, but can't be really sure, there are lots of forces involved...

There is alot more than just the V=IR of battery's internal resistance. Alot more. You pay attention to one "Law" like it matters when you ignore (10) other "laws"...

Re: Power Loss on New eMotorcycle

Do you think the 400a will be a better choice than the 300a? I don't think it will matter all that much in your case since your controller is rated at 150A battery. So unless you change for some beefier controller later 300A will be more than you'll ever need. But if the price difference is not too...

Re: Doesn't make sense.. does my battery broken?33mΩ too much ir??

Yeah the math is not correct. It would be more useful to explain why and what should be the correct way. I'm thinking someting isn't right with this math since if u got 4 example 100ohm it will be: 0.100 * 50A = 5V which is more then 100% of cell voltage so it's doesn't make too much sense. I didn'...

Re: Doesn't make sense.. does my battery broken?33mΩ too much ir??

Let's take a "normal cell: If my math and method are correct: -0.003 ohm x 50Amps = 0.15V So that means this cell, whenever you are pulling 50Amps from it, will sag of 0.15V. If your cell fully charged was about 4.0V, under full 50Amps load the cell voltage will be 4.0 - 0.15 = 3.85V, so it's good. ...

Re: Power Loss on New eMotorcycle

So yeah, as the others pointed out, the problem comes from your battery. Your controller is an APT72400, which is a very nice unit, APT being one of the best chinese brands actually. It is rated at 150A battery and 400A/phase, which isn't bad but it is a tiny bit underpowered for this machine, still...

Re: electric scooter - moped more top speed

That's weird. With this voltage and this wheel diameter, your moped should reach around 75-80 km/h. I think there is something wrong in the way you've set up your controller. Please post some screenshots of all the different tabs you see in the controller interface so we can help you diagnose what's...

Re: Qiewa QPower Scooter, fairly new, battery wont charge

If it doesn't charge or doesn't do anything when connected on the bike, then I doubt a multimeter will give you any useful information anyway. It will either read zero volt or some floating voltage, nothing really useful. Still, it's a nice and cheap tool to have so you should definitely get one, bu...

I didn't know about aftermarket digital read outs for a lathe, so I checked a few of them out. That would be great, I especially like the zeroing feature, to reset at any point.

Re: New Project " help Please" Honda st1300 Conversion

Keeping the gearbox is, in my opinion, a good idea. This way you can maximize the torque on the wheel, maximize your top speed and, possibly, optimize your cruise speed efficiency by avoiding using flux weakening. It will also be funnier to drive, that's something most people seem to forgot somehow....

Re: Vespa PX200E conversion

9KW electric is not really comparable with 9KW gas powered. The torque is much greater with an electric motor, so you can get away with far less than this. Don't go for a 8KW motor on this thing, that's completely ridiculous, you will never be able to supply it with enough power (or if you can, then...

@APL my two cents: don't spend too much time on the cooling fans theory. I'm not sure yet which design you are settling on for your motor, but if it is anything similar to your previous one, then I suggest you to consider the following option: 3D print some covers. This way, you could very easily ex...

Might be a few millimeters though, now that I look at it. Should be enough? Yeah that should work fine.
